Okay seriously. Bloggers... we need to get back our community. I miss the "old days" when blogging created such a great community for bloggers, mom bloggers, scrapbookers, photographers etc. It was amazing to connect to other women around the country who shared in your same woes and triumphs.
I miss it. I really do.
So, I'm determined to change this. I'm going to cut back on Facebook. Because I full heartedly blame Facebook for the "demise" of the blogging community. I do. And it is time for blogging to make a comeback and for the blogging community to reconnect.
Here is what *I* am going to do... and what I am going to challenge *YOU* to do as well.
-Post on your blog at least 3 times this week. Even if its just a little blip about something small that happened during your day. Post. Document it.... for you... for your kids... for your memories.
-Comment on at least 3 other bloggers each day. Most bloggers use Google Reader (or bloglines? is that still around?) and it is so easy to read a post and skip onto the next without commenting. Don't. Leave them a little blog love... everyone loves comments!
-And this week I'm going to start doing a Blog Surfing Sunday (or something like that) and highlight a few blogs. I hope that my readers will take a few moments to hop on over to those sites and leave them some comment love.
So... are you in? Are you willing to make a little effort to reconnect? Is anyone still out there reading? Leave me a comment... I do love it.
